This was our first time staying at Lake Buena Vista Resort Village. I have lots of positive but a few negatives. Negative: We had choice of washing our own towels or paying extra to have them done daily. This should be done in price. No one wants to wash on vacations. And, our unit's kitchen didn't have bread pan or pot holders. However, the… Read more

Feb 15, 2019 nicolesweetz2312 London, United Kingdom

I am so disgusted with the customer service at this hotel. I made a refundable booking with booking.com and cancelled the reservation the same day but this hotel took money out for the reservation. The refund I received was way lower than what was taken from my account disgusting hotel

close to parks but daily shuttle is not a benefit, rooms are bare in terms of items stocked and required adding items from the store which is very pricey. Fire alarms were going off and took awhile to get fixed...Did not meet expectations for price and pictures on the website.

If you are looking for spacious accommodations not on Disney property but close enough to all the parks then this is the place for you! But that’s where it ends. I had called and emailed weeks in advance requesting early check in and a pack and play when we arrived got neither upon check in instead waited two hours killing time in the hotel. There… Read more
If you are looking for spacious accommodations not on Disney property but close enough to all the parks then this is the place for you! But that’s where it ends. I had called and emailed weeks in advance requesting early check in and a pack and play when we arrived got neither upon check in instead waited two hours killing time in the hotel. There is a resort fee but not sure what that covers since you have to pay for house keeping which I’m ok with but would’ve been nice if someone told me we have to book the cleaning days in advance and they give you no time window of when they’ll show up, of course they came during nap time so my sons room couldn’t even be cleaned Pool was meh , yes it’s heated I will say Patricia and Del are great both took care of us on a day where we lost our room key and of the front desks system was down it was pure chaos but they got us in quite quickly Overall the stay was fine but next time I’ll probably book elsewhere Read less

Overall it was a great stay! Very happy with the accommodations, pool was excellent and staff was very friendly. The general store actually had very good stock but there is a Walmart nearby (not so much walking distance however). The burgers at Frankie's were great!
